Good Tuesday night! I hope your week is going great so far. We are almost to the hump of the week, and then soaring toward the holiday weekend. The weather has been fantastic over the past few days and should stay that way over the next few days.
HARVEY STILL GOING
Harvey finally starts moving tomorrow. You can see the remnants will start getting on the move. This will increase our cloud cover over the next few days. Lifts even farther north by Thursday.
Because it turns to the NE, most of the rain will stay well SE of the region. Once Harvey passes by, this will allow us to start heating up for the holiday weekend.
A LOOK INTO THE WEEKEND AND HEADY PATTERN (CPH)
A nice big ridge of high pressure rolls in. This will really allow temperatures to get back where we should be during the holiday weekend.
Enjoy it as of course this is the unofficial end of summer. It looks like a pretty good cold front slides through next Tuesday cooling us back into the 70s for highs.
So where are we in the pattern? Remember, my theories are the new pattern will set up from the last week of September until the first week of October. Now when I say pattern, this means how storm systems will react. Now the cycle is the at 57.5 days. The length of the cycle means the same storms systems are rotating through on that rotation. The 57.5 cycle is rapidly dying, but you can still see it. The new cycle length has already developed but it is reacting with the old pattern. I can see it and use it, but it will be much stronger once the new pattern sets up.
The first half of the month will have a lot of temperature swings but in general fairly warm. The second half of the month really starts cooling down. I will go into this more tomorrow.
